A video art compilation
Curated & edited by Liliana Orbach
Video Latino presents a compilation of works by video artists born in Latin countries, some of which live and work in their country of origin, and some of which live and work in other locations within the globe.
Along with innovative trends and advanced technologies of our times, most of the works have cultural and/or territorial references, which are connected to the creators’ roots.
Themes such as locality, migration, gender, personal dilemmas, power struggles and social concerns, are approached through the creative sight and spirit of each of the participant artists.
As I finished editing Video Latino, I remained with a pleasant sense of satisfaction, since I felt that the variety of genres and the originality of means of expression included in this compilation, will drive the viewers to see it until it ends.
Video Latino has been created for Indie Gallery, Tel Aviv, and it will be screened from February 25th to February 27th, 2016.
